She’s blonde, she’s beautiful, she’s got style, she’s an American icon, she doesn’t look a day over 25, but she’s 50 this month. It’s time to wish Barbie, the best selling toy of all time in the toy business and still the #1 brand a Happy Birthday.
As a father of three daughters, we had so many Barbies that we had a Barbie Closet. Barbie gets beaten up now and then in the media, but she’s been an inspiration to millions of girls that you can be anything you want to be. My oldest daughter was a Barbie fanatic, and still has her collector Barbie’s. Her love for Barbie was the fashions and styles. I think Barbie really influenced her as her love for Barbie style translated to her life today as this fall she will start college at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in the area of Fashion Merchandising.
Thank you Barbie and Happy Birthday!
